a senior lecturer in international relations and security studies at moscow state university believes president pushing his peace plan is more like an ultimatum. peace by definition is negotiated and poor shango has already declared that there will be no negotiation with the political and militant leaders on the ground in the eastern ukraine so this is not a peace plan this is an ultimatum a demand for the unconditional surrender under promise of extermination as well this decentralization is not clearly defined but what we have seen so far is that only includes a local executive committees that governors would still have the right to be overruled and appointed by kiev this declaration of a ceasefire is merely a p.r. move by the poor janko regime in the run up it's not a surprise that the declared ceasefire ends on the very day that poroshenko was
9:09 am
supposed to sign the association agreement. months of military action has forced tens of thousands to flee to neighboring russia under its queue at the border seeking shelter and refugee camps you can hear more of their stories in our team. meet the world's most expensive weapon they are four hundred billion dollars f. thirty five an aircraft price tag just went even higher thanks to additional funding plagued by delays must have cost overruns and building brocker say the jet . left even its talkback are somewhat on the well and on to cover the price the planes not being target to foreign buyers as artie's marina portnoy explains the f. thirty five stealth fighter jet is the crime to look kramm of military planes. and the pentagon's most expensive conventional weapons program it's a game changer the f. thirty five fighter jet is manufactured by lockheed martin combining state of the art technology with highly advanced avionics and maneuverability the pentagon plans
9:10 am
to buy nearly twenty five hundred f. thirty five but delays and cost increases have left u.s. lawmakers frustrated over the three hundred eighty five billion dollar price tag and that's where america's allies come in. lockheed martin has turned to international partners at least eight foreign contracts are on the table but none have a final price tag so far canada's latest calculations have only proved that the cost will be at least ten billion dollars higher than expected experts suggest f. thirty five are something of a gamble for everyone involved there's never been anything anywhere near as expensive and the entire process is one in which the costs can only go up. the other problem is that the more they spend the more the united states in the manufacture and now a whole bunch of other countries become invested a bit more they have to go ahead in any of these countries that want to be cut
9:11 am
a good deal that they have no choice boosting demand from foreign investors is believed to be essential for the pentagon and lockheed martin why because the more f. thirty five are produced the cheaper each jet is to build and maintain her in a port naya r.t. . the f. thirty five is suffered one setback after another in the most recent case the entire fleet was drownded and testing suspended after one of the planes suffered an oil leak but the engines are not the only area this aircraft is experiencing problems and in fact as you're about to see here the plane has been suffering well documented cracks from head to tail the pentagon even stopped it from flying within forty kilometers of a thunderstorm out of fears its fuel could explode if struck by lightning we spoke to the man who helped design the iconic f. sixteen and eighteen are craft and he had little good to say about the f. thirty five. it's one of the worst airplanes we've ever designed. for
9:12 am
a lot of reasons but the most important reason is that it was compromised by having to do three different jobs you can never make a good airplane if you don't focus on a single a single mission and then they made it even worse by saying that we saved money by giving it up among three services so now you have three missions pulling the airplane in different directions now you have three services three bureaucracies adding their parochial point of view the airplane is a complete mess and mind you this is the most expensive single project that the that the defense department has ever undertaken. the stain for a promo campaign coming up the u.s. offers hard cash for ideas and hard to gain support for its trade agreement with europe but only gets a string of sarcasm and combination. the ugly side of the beautiful game lever

9:17 am
i'm. welcome back if you can convince them just for a cold hard cash that's what the u.s. government is doing offering large rewards to anyone who can come up with ways of promoting an unpopular trade pact with europe but the complain husband worked out as planned as peter oliver now explains. the united states has been accused of a cynical propaganda campaign after a tweet originated from its embassy just behind me here. this tweet was with regard to the transatlantic trade and investment partnership between europe and the united states now the tweet was offering up to twenty thousand u.s. dollars for any projects people could come up that would protect the trade deal in a good light snow it has come in for some scathing criticism from people here in
9:18 am
europe mostly because of worries over a decrease in standards the standards for products in europe are far higher than they are in the united states also on workers' rights as well though this is seen environmentalist environmentalists trade unions and health campaign is all railing against this trade deal to put that into perspective of the public opinion here in europe when it comes to the environment ninety six percent of germans say they have faith in european environmental regulation well only two percent believe in regulations inforced in the united states there's also been controversy surrounding genetically modified foods not liked here in europe people have demonstrated against them however there is concern that because of u.s. labeling laws they could inadvertently become into the european markets so all of
9:19 am
these things the same criticism of this tweet well it's kind of they have come in for far more criticism online because of this investment partnership deal comes a plenty of bold promises as well trade barriers would disappear along with any regular tory differences between the u.s. on the e.u. i predicted boost of around two hundred fifty billion dollars to america and europe's collective g.d.p. would expand both economies but critics say all comes too high a price they fear corporations would you. the agreement to gain too much power over a government and the taxpayers would end up footing the bill for anything that goes wrong the sheer size of the new trade zone the lack of transparency would make it much harder as well to hold companies to a current for breaching regulations michael shank of the washington based friends committee on national legislation believes it's a step backwards. well it's good for investors it's bad for health it's bad for the environment it's bad for labor and it's bad for regulations that countries and
9:20 am
states have worked for decades to institute so those are some of the biggest concerns and what it says to russia what it says to china with the t p p is that we don't want to a part of this conversation and in this very globalized interconnected world particular on trade because we don't have many barriers between us and e.u. already so when we're doing t. tape it's not really about removing trade barriers because the tariffs are quite low it's about saying to the rest of the world we have this partnership it's exclusive and you're not going to be a part of it on r t dot com right now we're looking at how environmental groups have been responding to surprising allegation from the head of nato greenpeace didn't mince its words when reacting to chief moose since claimed that it's taking orders from the kremlin as part of a plot to subvert governments find out what exactly was said on a website. also there japan may have failed to score during their latest world cup match but their fans have left a lasting impression on brazil by keeping the stadium spotlessly clean get the full
9:21 am
story in our teeth dot com. well compared to those japanese fans reputation of russian supporters couldn't believe the war they reportedly displayed neal nazi bomb a string their sides opening world cup match in brazil some of speculated this could lead to the national team being to ducted points by fifa artie's let your chefs confessed it's the origins of russian football hooliganism and what it's like not. showing support for your team in russia could mean this this. or this. when it will be also some go because in one thousand nine hundred eighty when sports night was playing cisco in mosco we had a huge fight blue warriors came up against us there was more than eight hundred people. in a brawl. and that is just one of the fights very silly described now a retired hooligan he says fan culture has changed massively in russia. a
9:22 am
stereotype of an english football hooligan or an italian ultras is no longer applied to us we went our own way now there are no loud criminal cases against you compared to the ninety's back in the soviet days football was considered one of the nation's sprites history's best goalkeeper left the team which won the first ever european championship and the police of revolutionary managers with the break up of the soviet union football just as many other spheres of life suffered a major setback it may be a coincidence but along with these problems came. it's still unclear what caused this surge in violence but in recent years russian hooligans have remained visible from violent pitch invasions to mass street rallies and racist incidents involving swastikas in the stands near nazi views and phobia are among the most debated a shoes back in twenty one a fan was killed during fighting in moscow that escalated into ethnic violence thousands of ultras made themselves heard right outside the walls of the kremlin.
9:23 am
politically motivated people have always been close to find groups not only have a propaganda is the cult of violence but they explained why this violence was needed that's why i know c.v.s. a popular there because force and violence are the bases of naziism and fascism but for more and found over russia's largest planned movement their market and i have believes the issue is often blown up in the press and problems are usually solved even before they appear. who spearheaded events at the my down in ukraine some of them are in the national guard now so potentially this is a very dangerous part of society but are all for it is a pursuing a very clever strategy with hooligan communities so there's no danger from them in russia these fights happen every weekend but no one knows if they happen out of town in. forest and strictly upon agreement. the twenty thirteen movie tells the
9:24 am
story of a firm of consistent paunchy of white collar workers where death and destruction rub shoulders with love and friendship one of just keeps on asking the question why do you find that your meetings with all of. the movies slogan is we can not change real life has proven they can insist of a cd it's just a matter of whether the rest of the world will be happy with this evolution of the russian fan culture when the country holds the next world cup in twenty eight. moscow moving on seventeen militants have been killed in iraq during infighting between and to government sunni groups over one million people have been displaced by the insurgency since the start of this year according to the u.n. and that number is only expected to rise as the army tries to push back the advance of an al qaeda offshoot isis which wants to establish an islamic state spawning several countries is already a troll of large parts of iraq including the second largest city mosul and it is
9:25 am
not listening in on baghdad meanwhile the first of three hundred u.s. military advisers promised by washington to aid the iraqi security forces well they are due to arrive later today but mideast expert joshua landis because the u.s. is reluctant to push this too far in view of the. results of the two thousand and three invasion you can watch the full interview in worlds apart tomorrow here on r t but for now this is a taster. this entire isis episode shows the incredible strategic blunder of president george w. bush and in attacking iraq and casting down the cinese from the top a society to the bottom destroying the state of iraq which kindled this sectarian struggle the united states is debating today about how much support to give to maliki many people believe that he is too sectarian that if america supports him it will offend sudanese turn to send the world against the united states and alienate
9:26 am
our support in the gulf therefore they're very reluctant to get in with direct military support they would like to get diplomats on the ground to begin negotiating as they did during the occupation. when you sort of a coming up here in r t international in the few moments time it's a boom bust on the global financial. so are we going back to iraq recently violence has flared up as insurgents are taking cities from the current iraqi government and response to this chaos obama declared that his administration is prepared to take military action whenever our national security is threatened oh well since the weapons of mass destruction were
9:27 am
never found in iraq and the current militants can't shoot their forty seven's over the ocean i don't see how us national security is at risk now or before the iraq war even started but on the other hand the flow of oil from us but tamia well that might be at risk but sometimes i forget that obama is a politician and just a day later he was quoted as saying quite the opposite about the same situation declaring that we will not be sending u.s. troops back into combat in iraq. which sounds great to my ears and do you wait yet another few days and now he is saying that they want to send at least two hundred seventy five troops to provide support and security for u.s. personnel and the us embassy in baghdad i think this orwellian attitude towards the truth comes from two factors one lying works obama gets away with it and to the fear of looking weak presidents have to act confident like they were total control of that awesome plan even when they have no idea what they're going to do i think this is the case with this iraq issue but that's just my opinion.
9:28 am
